Are your battery connections tight and clean? Battery connections are very fussy on clean tight connections.

SOURCE: tuff start ,then no start

If fuel filter hasn't been changed lately I would start with that, as well as adding some gasline antifreeze with moisture remover, or "heet" (brand name). do you always re-fuel at same place? Not sure where your at, but you did say, cold, so moisture in your tank, from warm & cold temperatures would definately cause problems similar to what your experiencing. Do you hear any hum from rear of car when you cycle key to on, but not start, if yes, turn it off & back on, 2 or 3 times & listen for same, then try to start & see if it makes a difference. Try the additive first, as I said, but if that doesn't do it, try to get a fuel pressure test done before & after filter change, or ideal would be when it won't start, as we all know, it won't do when mechanic has it. Let's hope filter cures it.

SOURCE: Engine cranks, but does not start

My suggestion to this is to check the basics. Check fuel pressure and check spark during crank. There is no quick answer for a no start condition. You always have to start by checking the basics. An engine with no spark or fuel will not start every time.

Why is my volt light flashing off and on?


Your alternator is bad. When the car drove home fine it was running off the battery and not the alternator. Replace the alternator, and the belt too while you're at it.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

Car won't start says check traction control


the car should still start even with somthing wrong with the traction control. sounds like you have a dead battery. i would check it first. and if battery is dead charge it and start the car then take it to your local advance auto and have the altinator checked thay do it for free. if a charged battery dont start the car then you may have a bad starter. again the traction control light will not keep the car fromk starting
